“Following the award of a Leverhulme Research Fellowship to Dr Alice Hunt, the Department of English invites applications for the post of a Lecturer in English. We are looking for an outstanding early career academic, who has published high quality research, and can demonstrate an excellent track record in teaching. The appointment is for one year, full time, and it is anticipated that the successful candidate will take up the post on 1 August 2013.
The Department of English at the University of Southampton demonstrates excellence in all periods of English Literature, and includes strengths in Creative Writing, Film, and Digital Humanities. We have a dynamic and collaborative research culture, both within and across periods, and enjoy strong interdisciplinary links with other departments in the Faculty of Humanities and the wider university. We have an excellent reputation for teaching, valuing both research-led teaching and teaching-led research, and are committed to knowledge exchange and public engagement.
You will possess an excellent honours degree, a completed doctorate in the literature, history, and culture of the Early Modern period, and an eagerness to contribute to the intellectual and creative culture of the department. An interest in Shakespeare and Early Modern drama would be an advantage.
